Send Article to a Friend

QuickTime 7.1, Front Row 1.2.2 Released -- Apple improved two of its media-centric products last week. QuickTime 7.1, a 49.1 MB download, delivers "numerous bug fixes," improves H.264 performance, and adds unspecified support for iLife '06. The media playback application Front Row 1.2.2, a 4 MB download, adds song shuffling in playlists, and fixes bugs related to preventing Audible audiobooks from playing, DVD compatibility issues, and more. Software Update has the updates as well, of course, and beware - as always - that QuickTime 7.1 will overwrite QuickTime Pro 6 licenses. [JLC]
